Shot in his studio, the video is an intimate interview - about his portrait painting -with Garry Shead, one of Australia’s most famous and acclaimed lyrical figurative expressionist artists, the winner of the Archibald Prize for Portraiture and the Dobell Prize for Drawing.

The role that portraiture occupies in Garry Shead's oeuvre can only be described as curious. At least since the late 1960s, Shead seems to have been out of step with prevailing fashions in the art world, yet as a portraitisthis credentials have never been questioned. On twelve occasions his portraits have been hung in the "Archibald Prize" exhibitions at the Art Gallery of New South Wales. At the age of nineteen he appears to have been one of the youngest artists ever to be hung in the "Archibald"; and in 1993 he was awarded the Archibald Prize for his Portrait of Tom Thompson. By the age of twenty-five he was a recognised and decorated portraitist on the Australian art scene. (Sasha Grishin)
